Bilingual Health Services
Bilingual health aides provide health education and assistance with language and cultural interpretation of health information for non-English and limited English speaking Kauai residents. We alleviate barriers to public health services for Filipino, Native Hawaiian, and Compact of Free Association (“COFA”) populations. Services include community outreach, home visits, representation on multi-cultural agencies, family and individual counseling, screening, follow-up, referral, and support in accessing medical and social services.
